. many say the church is on a slope to being a third world religion and it's looking to many like the next pontiff will come from latin america or africa. i'd like to see a progressive american become pope and usher this church into the 20th 20th century or maybe the 18th or 19th centuries. if you travel this country and visit churches, as i do, you'll see older congregations and a priest who is not from america more often than not. something that to be done if they want to save this church. i could talk all night about the fact that the c. >> jennifer:celibacy rule is antiquated. it's the man made hang ups of an unauthorized fan club getting in the way of a lot of people. the facebook one religious group in our people are people raised religious and feel spiritual but let down by american religion. >> 24% identify with religion today that they were raised in. i want to ask you about money and the church. i'm going to get skeptical on you. how big a driving force is the ability for a european pope or to a degree an american pope to raise money for the church, where they would avoi

good crowd. they had a tensile store. here is the store that really blew my mind, true religion. my son wanted a pair of jeans. i said okay. i thought they would cause me a little less than $100. over $200. i was very shocked at how crowded the store was. he tried on four or five pairs of pants. he never tries any on. i am not sure what is going on. something has changed. remember late last year, true religion consider putting themselves up for sale. i think what it is, current management. this stock may be oversold here. they have one by on it. last year they were nothing but downgrades. earlier this year, insiders starting to nibble at the stock. extraordinarily conservative, in my opinion. they also upped their dividend. they opted to the fourth quarter of last year. showing signs of confidence. true religion, my son took me and he got me. i said from now on, the rest of my year, my man, nothing over $45. tracy: are you still thinking it is a by target pressure marks. charles: they announced to hire some advisors. it jumped 25%. again, my gut tells me these are the guys caught you kn

to buy a gun. just in the same vein of we have freedom of religion, we also have freedom from religion. we have freedom to buy a gun, shouldn't we have freedom from people who have guns? >> absolutely. background checks should be put in place immediately. there's no reason, even harry reid shouldn't be afraid to put that up for a vote. and i think they would get the support out of a republican congress. that is not a second amendment issue. the fact is that you are -- you are allowed to have a gun in your home, you are allowed to protect yourself. it doesn't mean that, for example, in new york city, you're allowed to walk around carrying a gun. it's for the safety of the whole. that's okay. what's going on right here is really republicans need to stand up when we hear this fear mongering going on. let's call it the way it is. we want to do some things we have to do, we're for the second amendment, but let's be reasonable and rational on this. >> well, as we -- as i brought up to senator barrasso there about using hurricane sandy as a reference point. could you imagine, you know? come o
. the most powerful idea was the first one that was abandon, and there's the lot of others, religion. the left turned against religion. when it was half of the movement's inspiration and half of the dr. king's magnificent formula of equal souls, equal votes, one foot in the scripture, one foot in the constitution, and next thing you know, people turn against the spiritual base of democracy. we misremembered the civil war for a century. when i was growing up in atlanta, my textbook said the civil war had nothing to do with slavery, and we got a lot of sentimental gone with the wind, and to this day, there are textbooks in history that refer to the political movement that overthrew the reconstruction governments after the civil war and restored white sprem sigh in the south and paid the way for segregation, refer to the -- the textbooks refer to that movement as the redeemers. the redeemers redeemed the south, a religious word that in reality was accomplished by terror, terrorism as much as the terrorism that plagues the world we're attuned to when it's not among us. it turned -- race
about religion and politics and how so many of the views that we believe, all of us, carefully reasoned and fought out, grounded in some deeper attitudes and deeper values and deeper life experiences, what i call world use that really shape or more specific beliefs, both in religion and in politics. so, not going to do too much of this, but i want to show you one of the charts. i don't try in this book to make an elaborate case where every single thing that i say, what i am trying to do is paint a broad landscape of what is wrong with in this country the walleye the population and congress's polarized and why that leads to congressional gridlock. let me do this first. this chart has been called the essentials chart for understanding, you know, the consequences that our budget conundrum are causing. what it shows is as of may 2011, this is done by the center for budget policy and priority based on cbo numbers. this shows the price of the annual deficit due to the board -- wars, the bush-era tax cuts to recovery measures. that means primarily the bush stimulus and the obama's stimulus pro
books about the revenge of god, that religion is making a comeback as a political player. two-thirds of the 1.2 billion catholics in the world today live outside the west, and most live in societies where religion is critically important, so, yeah, i would say there's still some gas left in the church's political gas tank. >> john, real quickly, only a couple of seconds left here, but what do you know specifically in regards to what they are looking for for a pope? stances on abortion, same-sex marriage, that kind of thing. >> reporter: well, all these cardinals have been appointed by john paul and benedict so they are all in agreement on the main. of course they are looking for a hole guy but three things quickly, one, somebody with a global vision, two, somebody who is a missionary, who can take the church's message to the street and, three, somebody who can fix the perceived internal governance problems in the vatican itself. you roll all that up, you probably have a pope. >> john allen, so good to get your insight. thank you so much for being with us today. >> sure. >> and
about religion and politics, and how so many of the views that we believe are carefully roped -- reasoned and thought out, are grounded in deeper attitudes, deeper values, deeper life experience-what i call world views, that really shape our more specific beliefs both in religion and in politics. so, i'm not going to do too much of this but i want to show you one of the charts. i don't try in this back to make an elaborate case for everything i say. i try paint a blood landscape why the population and congress is for alreadyized and why that it that leads to congressional gridlock. let me do this first. this chart has been called sort of the essential chart for understanding the consequences that our budget conundrum. it shows in may 2011 -- doesn't by the senate for budget policies and priorities based on cbo numbers. this shows the parts of the annual deficits that are due to the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and the bush era tax cuts, recovery measures -- that means primarily the bush stimulus and the obama stimulus programs -- t.a.r.p., fannie and freddie, and the economic
, and i mean-- i do not mean this to be in any way disrespectful toward religion-- but is it like a political convention? do you have people getting together feeling each other out? because one of you is going to be elected to this job. what's it like inside one of those conclaves? >> well, before the conclave actually start, there are a number of days when all the cardinals come together so that we can actually talk among ourselves, begin to get a better sense of one another. there are going to be 117 of us there with the right to vote. and just to get to know a little bit better personally one another, there will be four or five days of these meetings. but it-- >> schieffer: will you in any way-- could you be the nominee? >> no, that-- that enters into the world of fantasy. but when we get back into the real world i think what will happen is a number of cardinals will begin to surface in the conversation among all of us as particularly appealing candidates. it's not like a political process, though. there aren't nominations, and you don't have people saying, "i vote for..." and
. another issue is how to have dialogue, with religions, the great rise of islam. how are we going to truly dialogue with these religions, in order to reach a truth, the truth, which we believe as roman catholics. and i think a third issue is, many of the problems that the world faces, the church too needs to tackle. for example, beginning of life issues, end of life issues. how do we deal with marriage? how do we deal with the sanctity of marriage. how do we deal with moral issues. how do we deal with the economic crisis? that's what people want to hear. that's what people need to hear in the world we're living in, in order that we give them hope. i think i heard something that i think is very important, when you said, chris, pope john paul ii opened people's hearts. pope benedict filled people's hearts. he was a theologian. so now, what i think we need is somehow who allows people to take what they have received and now use it in their lives for the good of others. >> monsignor, thank you for coming over. liz lev, thank you, they will be staying with us and we'll be talking to them later
that politics and religion should never be discussed in polite conversation. but the united methodist church is doing just that -- discussing whether to change church doctrine added in 1972 that declares homosexuality incompatible with christianity.
's been so isolated that these people have had to do it on their own. religion is very important because it's a very strongly buddhist country and, and most, but not all, of the ethnic regions are that, and so the buddhist monks have been among the leaders of opposition to the military regime. so it's it's amazing, really that it kind of shows you the strength of the human spirit, you know, even under extremely difficult repressive circumstances. >> a free country also means a free economy and foreign nations have taken note. >> everybody today has discovered myanmar from the chinese to u.s. to europeans, to other asians. >> the new law is far more open. there are provisions in the constitution against nationalization, which, of course, foreign firms are very worried about given the past history of that country. but burma is full of natural resources. as the chinese say, "it is a beggar with a golden bowl." >> myanmar has a very strategic location and presently china is building two pipelines that go through the western part of myanmar. one pipeline will crude oil from the middle east to
with the owners who say their religion is the rope they didn't bake the couple's cake. >> he believes in god and i does not believe in same-sex marriage. he shouldn't have to bake a cake for that. he should be able to freely deny them without all this backlash. >> reporter: despite the protest outside, sweet cakes was open for business. supportive customers lined up out the door. >> i appreciate the fact that they are standing up for what they believe in and i want to show them support since there are demonstrators not showing support. >> the owners say the backlash has been harsh but they're standing by their decision. >> make me feel good to know that even though everybody seems to think that portland and the surrounding areas are so liberal that there really are some conservative christians out there that want to make their voices heard. >>> next, a look at the big winners in this year's grammys. we'll be right back. almost tastes like one of jack's cereals. fiber one. uh, forgot jack's cereal.

merry christmas at christmas time, doesn't matter whether they're jewish or any religion, it's a salutation, a greeting of goodwill. we've got to get over this sensitivity. you make 10 billion dollars, you put in a billion. you make $10 you put in 1. of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. [applause] but now, now, some people say, they say well, that's not fair. because it doesn't hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars as much as the guy who made 10. where does it say you have to hurt the guy. >> megyn: and now brad, a former deputy assistant to president george w. bush and dan, the president of gotham ghost writers. an interesting question posed by miss crowly whether it was disrespectful and some on the panel, say it was disrespectful for the doctor to speak this way before the president at the national prayer breakfast. dan, your thoughts? >> i teach a class at nyu and the first thing i tell my students he when you're talking about judging ethical behavior context is the most important thing. if dr. karr son said this at rnc convention at the heritage foundatio
pullback, making stocks plunge 50%. is there any chance we got religion too soon on spending now? it is hurting business confidence. >> i don't think we got any religion on spending, we haven't cut any spending. we are not in danger of doing anything to the spending side that would hurt the economy. that is an old keynesian argument that it could be increasing the wealth of the country. it is an illusion, causing mal investment. placed in things the government chooses, not things that the government wants. in any way would hurt the economy, think it would help the economy. imagine what the stock market would do if we were going to fix entitlements permanently. the stock market would rally to that. dennis: we are on the way, hope. thank you for being with us, senator rand paul. >> thank you. dennis: a bottle of wine, food on the vine. how they're making money financing winemakers and small business, big ideas, coming up. sandra: long-running battle over the creation of dolls. dennis: first, take a look at the 10-year treasury.

denomination, no place of worship, no clergymen or equivalent in other religions will be forced by legal action in the chorus or the community to carry out weddings without their wishes? >> the honorable judge gimenez preempted the later parts of my contribution, but i can say to him was taken seriously all the points he's raised about the need for protection and he will see in some detail on the bill heller put them into place. >> i think by right honorable fred. written to honorable members on the issue of equality between same-sex and different sex individuals. the issues of consummation and adultery, while they will continue to be important aspects, they will not apply to marriage. they are both equal and should be a lifelong union. >> my honorable friend will know already there's no legal requirements to consummation, their provisions will mean ochiltree stays in couples will have the opportunity to decide on reasonable good behavior as many do already and issues he raises adults and not way. perhaps we can make more progress because there's no single view from religious organizations on t
faith and reason and the role of religion in a post-modern sectarian world, and even many of his fiercest critics would express admiration for his intellectual depth. as a ceo, as a business manager, the verdict is much more mixed. many critics would say he never got his hands successfully around the sexual abuse scandal. there was, of course, a spectacular vatican leak scandal that included the arrest of his own butler and created disarray and palace intrigue. there was a kind of chronic inability to get the trains to run on time. >> barbara, what do you think? >> reporter: well, obviously john is much better to speak about the ideology than i am, but think he also will be remembered by the scandals. even going to the american nuns and clamping down on them. there are a lot of people who may not be unhappy to see a change in the vatican. but, you know, the vatican butler scandal, the sex scandals, protesters in st. peter's square, you know, things like that that have really marked the last several years, i think, are going to be remembered by a lot of people when they come to st
one speech and freedom of religion. what he wanted to do was to convey not only the four freedoms, but to say we are fighting a war against the accusers of hitler to achieve those four freedoms. all people remember is that line. >> thinking about the republican response from marco rubio, it strikes me that it's a statement from him and where the republican party is right now a few months after a loss at the polls. i wonder how you compare to what you heard and what it says about where the party now is with where other parties have been a few months after losing to a reelected president. the democrats with bush or reagan got reelected. where do you think they are right now relative to other parties in this position? >> what they are doing and marco rubio reflected that, there is going to be a struggle. it's not as large as it was in 1964 after the gold water defeat or the democrats after 1972, but last night was one of the opening volleys in the battle that you will see between the conservative wing of the republican party and what is thought of as the modern plan. >> back tow obam

religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
